CUTX Community Grill

The Community Grill Food truck is on the go!
In 2020, CUTX created the Community Grill Food Truck to provide meals to the communities we serve. Since then, we've provided thousands of meals to non-profits, teachers, first responders and more!

Serving Up Happiness

The CUTX Community Grill Food Truck travels across DFW and East Texas to provide quality meals to the communities CUTX serves. We've partnered with school districts, law enforcement, non-profits, businesses and charities to serve up plates of happiness. 

With our resident food experts, Chef John Orshonsky and Chef Jesse Alvarez, the Community Grill can dish out traditional burgers or custom menus to fit the occasion. For more information, email

Supporting Our Community

You may be thinking what does a credit union need a Food Truck for? The answer is we use it to provide meals to those less fortunate and serve up a plate of goodness to servants of our community, including teachers, non-profits, first responders, and more. Most of the meals served from our food truck are free, and any profits made are donated back to our community. Since procuring the Community Grill Food Truck, we’ve been on the move and spreading the joy of a well-cooked meal from DFW to East Texas. See the chart below to see how many meals we’ve served since 2020.
